Playoff Odds

The Minnesota Wild got a fraction of a percentage point bump in their playoff probability, raising them to 94.222% odds of making the playoffs, according to HockeyStats.ca and Micah Blake McCurdy.

The tiny bump came from the Los Angeles Kings losing in overtime to the Anaheim Ducks. They still grabbed a point though and they’re cementing themselves into third place in the Pacific Division, with the fourth place Calgary Flames just outside of a wild card spot.

Tonight, aside from a Wild win, the team can get a little help in their playoff hopes with (in descending order of importance) a St. Louis Blues win over the Winnipeg Jets, a Philadelphia Flyers win over the Calgary Flames, a Toronto Maple Leafs win over the San Jose Sharks, a Columbus Blue Jackets win over the Vancouver Canucks, and an Arizona Coyotes win over the Colorado Avalanche. (Though if you are a Wild fan who hates the Avalanche, you probably want them to win, because they aren’t going to make the playoffs and they’re just working themselves into a worse draft pick by winning.)

Here’s a look at how the playoff probabilities in the Western Conference look at the moment.
